On a mission to find the American Dream, the Rinella and Lombardo families immigrated from Sicily and Rome, Italy to the United States. After making a stop in Manhattan, New York, they eventually settled in Portland, Oregon. The business was started in 1914 by Frank Rinella, Sr. His son, Frank Rinella, Jr., carried on the tradition. With only one truck at the time, David Rinella took over in the early 1980's for his father. His wife, Cindy, joined him in 1986 when they married.
Rinella Produce remains family-owned and operated. David and Cindy currently run the business with the help of their three children: Jennifer, Michael and Rachel. Located in the heart of Portland, near Produce Row, we are in one of the oldest existing produce distribution buildings on the West Coast.
Our products include fresh produce, oils, proteins, and frozen and canned goods and much more. We have an expert prep crew on-site to cater to your individual needs be it thinly sliced mushrooms for pizza, trimmed green beans for a catering event or peeled potatoes for home!
